I'm Gonna Get Them Doors Open If It Harelips Ever'body On Bear Creek!

by Rainier on Jan. 5, 2012 @ 12:00 a.m. PST | Filed under MOTD

We had put a few movies and TV series on the laptop to watch during our downtime from visiting friends and family during the holidays. Since we are NCIS fans, we decided to check out Mark Harmon's Certain Prey, based on John Sandford's Prey series (21 books and counting). You'd figure those references would make for a good TV movie, but alas, it was a horrible 120 minutes with stiff acting, a weak plot, and boring segments all around. Definitely not worth seeing.

Now that we're back home, I've been playing a bit of The Old Republic and enjoying it. So far, I'm grinding through PvP to rank up, but there are lots of story missions to get through. You've also got extra-hard PvP sections (Heroic stuff) that are optional but of course give good rewards, and those are best done in a group setting.
